For half a century, Brother Joseph Zoettl used stones, bricks, marbles, tiles, pipe, shells and more to create more than 125 miniature replicas of world-famous buildings and sacred sites such as the ancient city of Jerusalem, St. Peter’s Basilica, the leaning tower of Pisa, and the hanging gardens of Babylon. The Grotto is located in a 4-acre landscaped park on the grounds of Alabama’s only Benedictine Abbey with church and monastery and is listed in the National Register of Historic Sites.
